I have developed a wide range of patterns for Jersey Fabric

The important thing to remember when sewing Jersey is the stretch. For this reason, sewing jersey is easy because fit is not such a problem and the fabric moulds around the body so you don't have to rely on darts for your shaping.

Jersey presents other difficulties though, unless you are in the know. Without careful handling the fabric will stretch completely out of shape while you are machining. For this reason many sewers think they will only achieve success if they use an Overlocker (Serger). I will show you in my videos that in many ways it is better to use a Regular Sewing Machine
